Comments: I've always just gone straight up the ridge line. Piece of cake.

Comments: Hey! That was my FA. I totally forgot about it though. I started pretty far to the right in the low scoop and moved left which included a dead point to a small crimp, then up into the big holds on the slab.

Comments: Logan was on the project that Tristan bolted back when we were still developing the area. I was planning to both the rout over the roof to the left of this, but never got around to it.

Comments: Just so you know, the route actually goes up the crack to the right, then traverses around to the left under the big roof. I can see the big flake sticking out of the crack below the roof that added to the excitement. It really doesn't matter though as long as you were having fun. I've done both of those cracks and thought the one on the right way more fun, but to each their own.

Comments: One thing I learned a long time ago is that these "main" faces in the quartzite is that pretty much everything has been done over and over again. You can only put so much into a guidebook. But hey, climb whatever looks interesting to you and call it good.

Comments: This looks like the roadside cracks above Robbins Crack. They were my first climbs as a young kind. I've never seen a specific name besides either "Roadside Cracks" or "Practice Cracks".

Comments: Ha ha! I am trying to recall how in the world we got up there to drill the bolts in the first place. I think Tristan just scrambled up using tied off bushes for pro. This is probably how it happened cuse Tristan has always been fearless.

Comments: Boy! I still remember when all that black moss covered the entire face! I spent a good long while up there cleaning it off...

Comments: There at least used to be a nice flake for your right hand that made getting you foot high pretty easy. Very possible this flake broke off by now.

Comments: I wonder if anyone ever sent the project just left (basically under) Excessive Bail. Start to the left and work up tiny crimps angel leftwards to the crack that heads up to join EB. Tristan and I were doing it on TR (years ago) trying to get it wired before we pulled out the pads to go for it. We didn't think it was a good idea to bolt it. We ended up getting distracted by other fun projects before the real send (I know we both got it on TR at least once).

Comments: I never knew what the route on the right was called, but I agree that .11d is a good rating for it. Sweet little line. I enjoyed it.

Comments: Ryan is right. If you find the feet right for the roof moves it's not that bad. Psyched to onsite this baby back in the day.

Comments: I swear I remember avoiding getting into the chimney/OW at all. That was years ago and my memory might be leaving me. I remember just smearing up the slab just left of the crack and throwing in a piece or two. Has anyone else done it this way?

Comments: Totally better way to start; but not a great line to start leading on. The opening crack is a gimme, but yeah, the slab moves are a little committing. Could be a bit nerve wracking for a first time trad leader.
